Jack Benny was a genius
Another great show by Jack Benny, who had the best delivery of any comedian ever, and his ability to laugh at himself was terrific,also love how they would take an act by the Sportsmen and turn into a commercial, something youd never see today!

Jack Benny was the funniest man in the world
My young teenaged son saw Jack Benny a couple of years ago for the first time. He sat and marveled at, as he put it, a man in a business suit who looked like a banker or businessman, who just stand there and make you laugh. I explained to him that Jack Benny and people like him knew what they were doing and needed no gimmicks like the lessers of today.
